The Pocari Sweat-Air Force Lady Warriors have been the most entertaining squad of the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference in terms of match length.
Pocari Sweat-Air Force wiggled past the Petro Gazz Angels, Wednesday evening, marking their third win in six five-setters this season.
While the match was thrilling all throughout, and included a nail-biting finish, the Lady Warriors would prefer if they clinched wins a bit earlier.
“Minsan kasi para kaming diesel – ang tagal naming mag-init sa loob ng court and then kapag nakakakuha kami ng first set at second set, parang nagre-relax na kami,” lamented Pocari Sweat captain Myla Pablo, who tallied 22 points against Petro Gazz.
“Kailangang kapag naka-dalawang sets, kailangan ang mindset mo hanggang matapos straight sets talaga. No choice naman kami kung laging fifth set ang game namin. Kumbaga kapag fifth is puso na yan, utakan sa loob ng court.”
The Lady Warriors sit at 5-5, right on the precipice of a semis berth, with four games remaining on their schedule.
For now, the Lady Warriors are focusing on developing their killer instinct.
“Kailangang i-maintain namin ang mga natitirang incoming games namin na apat,” the former league Most Valuable Player hopes. “Kailangang i-tatak namin sa sarili namin na kailangan nating manalo for the top four talaga.
“Paghihirapan talaga namin na makuha ang winning games namin.”
